Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-18097) Client can save 1 RPC call for CloseScannerRequest
Date Wed, 24 May 2017 01:29:04 GMT
Karan Mehta created HBASE-18097:
-----------------------------------

             Summary: Client can save 1 RPC call for CloseScannerRequest
                 Key: HBASE-18097
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-18097
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Karan Mehta


Starting version 1.3, HBase automatically closes scanner on server side whenever the results
are exhausted and corresponding bits are set in the {{ScanResponse}} proto returned to the
client. We can use that info to eliminate the closeScanRequest RPC call, thereby saving 1
RPC per region per scan. This can be particularly useful for tables with more regions.

Also, currently the {{ScanResponse}} proto sends out 1 bit per {{Result}} that it has embeds
inside the {{CellScanner}} to indicate if it is partial or not. 
{code}
    // In every RPC response there should be at most a single partial result. Furthermore,
if
    // there is a partial result, it is guaranteed to be in the last position of the array.
{code}
According to client, only the last result can be partial, thus this repeated bool can be converted
to a bool, thus reducing overhead of serialization and deserialization of the array. This
will break wire compatibility therefore this is something to look for in upcoming versions.
